Human right groups and human activists are calling for the immediate release of about 74 people who have been arrested for protesting in Egypt. The protesters are calling for the resignation of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. On Saturday, Human Right Watch (HRW) told the Egyptian government to protect its citizens who are protesting and also to release those arrested.
It all started when Mohamed Ali who is a businessman and is currently in exile, took to social media to make videos about the President Sisi’s government is corrupt together with the Egyptian army. The businessman has been posting these videos from Spain that have gone viral. Mohamed Ali, who is a construction contractor did countless videos, accusing Sisi and the military of engaging in construction corruption deals.
Abdel Fattah el-Sisi however denied claims of allegations and said early September the military did nothing wrong and that, the military just interested in protecting the sovereignty of the people of Egypt. Sisi is currently in USA, New York to attend the up coming United Nations general assembly. He is yet to make comments on the protest and what is currently happening in his country.
According to reports, one life have been lost during the protest so far.
